Investigation ongoing in Police Academy death

G.E. Rutland wins large tax credit

Victim was David McMullen, age 44 The Vermont Criminal Justice Training Council (VCJTC) initiated a personnel investigation at the Police Academy on Jan. 7 which resulted in the seizure of four computers. The personnel investigation focused on electronic communication between staff members to include Director R.J. Elrick and Training Coordinator Dave McMullen of Cornwall. Personnel matters are confidential by law and policy and we are unable to comment in any more detail. During the week of Jan. 11, the Vermont State Police initiated a criminal investigation after a preliminary analysis of McMullen’s computer revealed it may have contained information of a criminal nature. The contents of the computer were then further analyzed, during which time information indicating that potential child pornography was accessed from an outside source by this assigned computer. The analysis also indicated that similar material may have been linked to external sources, to include a home computer. On Jan. 15, Vermont State Police investigators applied for and were granted a search warrant for McMullen’s residence in Cornwall. The search warrant was executed on the evening of Jan. 15 and items from the home were seized. These items are in the process of being submitted for forensic computer analysis. On Jan. 16, at approximately 10:20 a.m., McMullen was found dead behind a maintenance shed located on the property of the Vermont Police Academy. McMullen’s death appears to be a suicide. His body has been sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Burlington where an autopsy will be performed. McMullen’s death is currently being investigated by State Police detectives from “D” Troop. McMullen will be transported to the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner ’s Office for autopsy to determine cause and manner of death. This is an active and open investigation at this time.

GEnx manufacturing effort to benefit By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — General Electric Aviation in Rutland, Vt., was awarded nearly $12 million in U.S. tax credits for its clean-energy, high-tech GEnx jet engine project. The $11.9 million tax credit, made public last week, will be used to purchase various high-tech machinery and equipment that will be used in the precision manufacturing of G.E. Aviation’s nextgeneration jet engine. The advanced turbofan engine is now under development at several facilities—including Rutland—and is planned for use in Boeing’s 787 and 7478 jets. The GEnx will replace the CF6 engine. Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner is a widebody jet airliner and will seat up to 330 passengers. Since orders were first placed in 2007, the 787 has become the fastest-selling airliner in history. The sub-sonic jet will begin flying later this year. Boeing’s 747-8 is a longer, leaner version of the 1960s-era 747 Jumbo Jet. It will fly later this year as a freighter and in 2011 as a passenger jet. GEnx is innovative for its bleedless engine design meaning that outside air entering the engine is used almost entirely to produce thrust thus greatly reducing fuel consumption. GEnx is being billed as the world’s first “green” jet engine. It’s use in new Boeing jets around the world will mean significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced fossil fuel consumption, and reduced atmospheric water vapor contrails. General Electric is a 64 percent owner of the engine project with non-American stakeholders, including I.H. Heavy Industries of Japan, Avio, Volvo Aero, Techspace Aero, Mitsubishi, and Samsung—in order of decreasing financial interest. Key components for the GE90 and CF34 engines—blades and vanes—are also manufactured at the Rutland facility. G.E. Aviation’s domestic and international competitors include Pratt & Whitney (USA) Rolls-Royce (U.K.).

Students in Rutland schools to receive dental care benefits Taxpayers funds used

RUTLAND — A new partnership between Rutland schools and the region’s community health center will provide dental care for students throughout the district. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) secured $125,000 in taxpayer funds for the Community Health Centers of the Rutland Region to establish the dental program. Access to dental care is serious problem in Vermont and throughout the country, according to Rutland Public School Superintendent Mary Moran and Grant Whitmer, executive director of the health center. “There are many Vermonters who have lost their teeth or who suffer a lot of unnecessary pain because, for lack of money or access, they have not been able to get to a dentist when they should,” Sanders said at

Ice wars: Beating back the lake ice By Lou Varricchio SHOREHAM — While the Fort Ti-Shoreham Ferry on Lake Champlain closed for the current winter season Dec. 31, it ran two months past its normal open-water season thanks to the creative engineering efforts of Ferrisburgh-based OSI Industries, home of the Dock Doctors Water Specialists. The normally frozen lake channel between Shoreham, Vt.—where the ferry is based— and Ticonderoga, N.Y., was kept open since mid November to accommodate thousands of commuters and other travelers seriously inconvenienced by the closure, and final demolition, of the 80-year-old Lake Champlain Bridge. According to marine specialist Chris Girard of Dock Doctors, the Vermont company was called upon to figure out a way to keep the Ti ferry running past it’s summer season. “Just after the bridge closed, both New York and Vermont state officials contacted us to get involved,” Girard said.

“Mike Matot, the ferry owner, was asked to keep running past the tourist season. But both states wanted Mike to keep the ferry sailing into December. It wasn’t going to be an inexpensive job. And we are the only ones locally that have the lake knowledge to do this sort of thing. So, we were up to the technical challenge.” Dock Doctors was able to demonstrate the means by which narrow portions of Lake Champlain could be kept icefree during the early winter season. But as Girard said, the 24-hour, seven-days-a-week effort came at a high price—a price the includes both labor, equipment and lots of overtime. The marine firm responded quickly to the bi-state request by coming up with a twoprong attack on the ice forming on Lake Champlain in November. The “ice war” on the lake began in mid November and included use of Dock Doctors’ special underwater air bubbling system and its custombuilt waterfront motor vessel

dubbed the “Miss Doc”. The 32’x13’ “Miss Doc” was built in Ontario almost entirely out of lightweight marinegrade aluminum. The flat-bottom vessel, which superficially appears to be a John boat on steroids, includes a high-tech pilot house and a heavy lifting crane. The vessel is powered by two 135 HP outboard gasoline engines. Since before Thanksgiving, “Miss Doc” ran 24 hours a day through thick and thin (ice that is) until last week when the ferry was finally closed for the 2009 season. Dock Doctors’ bubbler system, powered by onshore compressors, blows a constant stream of warm air a foot or so above the lake bottom, to agitate the water creating a submarine upwelling of warm water into the surrounding chilling water. This agitation slows Order for Valentine’s Day

According to Girard, Dock Doctors could have kept the lake channel open between Vermont and New York for many weeks into January and possibly February but the effort would have been expensive. “Everyone has been very pa-

tient with the inconvenience of losing the old Crown Point bridge,” Girard said. “This has been like a lot like working at an airport. We’re not sure what Mother Nature is going to throw at us, so we’re working to keep the runways open.”

and eventually stops the formation of ice. Once a channel was opened, “Miss Doc” was used to push back the ice along the channel edges and help build up a wall of thick ice—shore-to-shore— that wasn’t going to move much. Occasional ice calves were pushed back by “Miss Doc” with a screened metal plow on her bow. “Miss Doc” is also capable of rising up on the ice, or shore, if needed. Her hinged bow opens, a miniature version of the U.S. Navy’s amphibious LSTs of World War-II. Ultimately, the insurance company insuring the Fort Ticonderoga Ferry decided it could no longer insure the ferry past Jan. 3. So, without the insured extension period, Mike Matot closed the Ti ferry until spring 2010.

The Democrats’ national health care legislation is awaiting final action by Congress; it would dramatically expand the nationwide network of community health centers that provide primary care, dental care, mental health counseling and lowcost prescription drugs. However, most Republicans and other critics claim the Democrat legislation will limit patient rights as well as choice, reduce the quality of care, increase costs, and diminish the nation’s current high level of medical technology. 56535 “Vermont is now a national leader in terms of making affordable primary health care available to all people,” Sanders said. “In the coming years I hope that we will expand this community health center program to Addison and Bennington counties.” Vermont’s eight federally qualified health centers and 41 satellite offices now serve 113,000 patients, more people, per capita, than any other state.

“Vote ‘yes’ now, pay later”


.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) is bringing home the bacon this holiday season and he’s lugging it back here in familiar cooperage: the good ol’ fashioned pork barrel. Sen. Leahy’s gift to Vermonters—and all Americans for that matter—is 100 percent pure, Capitol Hill pork. On Dec. 21, the Senator from Vermont nabbed us $250 million in U.S. Government funds to “offset” Vermont's Medicare contribution for a period of six years. Clever dealing, you say? Well, think again. The Senator ’s Dec. 21 midnight largess, at the expense of the American public, may sound sweet at first blush except for the fact that the rest of us will have to pick up the bar bill when fed funds are exhausted, six years hence. At the end of Mr. Leahy’s Senate-brokered grace period, Vermonters will be forced to pay the Medicare piper—for at that time, the state will be saddled with an enormous unfunded D.C. mandate that it will be obliged to pay. And at what price? More taxes? More closed businesses? More jobs moved out-of-state? Thanks to last month’s pork-barrel handouts to wavering Democrat Senators (Senator Leahy was not alone), cynical sweetheart deals are now the expected way to govern—rather, buy votes—in order to support the Obama administration’s Bloated Government Wish List. We’ll see more of this as the clock counts down to the 2012 election—include everything from health care and carbon taxes to immigration reform and—who knows what else? Be prepared for more dark-of-the-night vote buying schemes by our cynical U.S. Senate and House leadership. In the wee-small hours of the morning of Dec. 21, while you and I were asleep in our beds dreaming of Christmas gifts under the tree, certain of our U.S. Senate dressed up like the Grinch and voted to silence debate on the nation’s most historically flawed health-care bill ever—all for the

sake of demonstrating that the Democrats had the votes needed for passage. The Senate’s backroom deal-making came only after its leaders made plenty of budget-busting “arrangements” with certain senators in order to buy their support. Here are two of the most talked about examples (in addition to Vermont’s “Vote ‘Yes’ Now and Pay Later” deal): •The “Cornhusker Kickback”: Designed expressly with U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson’s wavering vote in mind. The kickback exempts Nelson’s windswept state of Nebraska from sharing the cost for putting certain of its low-income residents on Medicaid. A sweet deal. Oh, we forgot to mention that a U.S. Air Force Base scheduled for closing in Nebraska will now, miraculously, remain open. (Yes, Nebraska, there is a Santa Claus!) Regarding this Medicaid deal, Nebraska is now off the hook to the federal government; instead, the taxpayers—that’s you and me—will pick up the tab, apparently, in perpetuity. •The “Louisiana Purchase”: The Louisiana Purchase of 2009 makes President Thomas Jefferson’s original Louisiana Purchase look shabby. Louisiana U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu made a very sweet deal with an extra $300 million in Medicaid funding thrown in for her state. The U.S. Senate’s after-midnight vote buying is a sign of how out of touch Washington is with today’s average Americans. The Senators who voted yes have scant regard for taxpayer dollars and even less regard for taxpayers. Real health-care reform that can be trusted will require open debate, transparency, and bipartisanship. The onesided majority party, business-as-usual sweetheart dealmaking simply won’t get the job the done. Instead, genuine health care reform will require serious tort reforms, cost reductions, more interstate competition among insurers, and more free-market ideas than what’s been discussed so far. As we’re learning, consuming Chicagolandstyle pork is bad for your nation’s financial health. Lou Varricchio with others

Interstate drivers


woooouuahhhww! The sound an outgoing e-mail message makes when it leaves the send box? Nope. Bap! Poooff! Bonggg! Twaack! Sounds Batman and Robin’s make when landing on the bad guys chins? Not exactly. ZZzzing, doung, dong, bwootee-goo-danggong! A Chinese dude describing the sound his wok made when his wife threw it at him? Ah, not quite. Crack! Whowoff! The sound a baseball bat makes whiffing past Mariano Rivera’s cutter? Could be, but a little off. Warning: What follows is a tired, lame, Tiger Woods joke— Crash, crash, crash, crash! The sound created by Elin Woods as she tried to kill her hubby? Yes, but the four crash sounds—and the array of sounds I just noted—are all sounds made by your car when you drive it off the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System into the medium. Hopefully that’s news to you, but I gather it’s not. The past few winters driving on the interstate highway, I’ve entertained myself by counting car divets in the medium. There’s been so many to count, I’ve hardly had time to text. Last night, I counted 15 fresh car divots on the 25-mile-long stretch of highway between Williston and Waterbury, and yesterday was a dry weather day! What the heck is going on out there drivers? R.U. High? (Sorry, that’s an obscure reference to Randolph Union High School.) If you are the person who caused a divot, and you were high or drunk when you caused it, you’re a dope—period, no excuse. You can, however, use your abuse of substances as an excuse for driving off the road. You can’t use the substance, you can use your use of it. I’m going to guess about one-third of the divots can be traced back to substance folly. I get that. What I don’t get is why for the other two-thirds? Am I missing something? Are the local television news shows paying people to drive off the road so they’ll have something for the evening newscast? Must be so because not only has the weather been less severe the past handful of years, but road maintenance has, in large measure, strode mightily regarding effectiveness toward drivability. It seems the better the roads are, overall, the more you go off them. It’s kind of like the more information we have on eating a healthy diet, the fatter and less healthy we become. I feel for the police and highway/driving safety teams. It can’t be fun risking your life teetering about up on the interstate freeway in horribly frigid conditions, hand-holding yet another shivering dufus while they cry frozen tears onto your uniform and blurt: “There was nothing I could do, all of a sudden I was twirling off the road.” Well shivering dufi, there is something you can do—in fact, there are lots of somethings you can do to avoid driving off the interstate or any road. The list is endless, I’ll jot down a handful. Thank me at the rest area. To be continued... However, I’ll leave you with something my Dad used to tell me when I’d bring home a new auto or motorcycle. Just after he’d compliment me and my new rig, he’d say: “That’s a beautiful machine. See it there? Look at it, use it and enjoy it. But remember, that machine will only do what you make it do. Use your head, operate it well, and respect it, and you’ll never have a problem.” Easier said than done for more Vermont drivers than any of us care to admit.

Albany’s lake bridge shenanigans?


or reasons going back to Vermont’s 18th century secession from New Hampshire on its right and New York on its left, Vermont has no control over the bridges which connect it to those states. This fact helps shrinks Vermont’s liability for maintenance expenses, but it grows its vulnerability to policy decisions made elsewhere—like the decision made in Albany which imploded the 80-year-old Lake Champlain Bridge. The demolition came as quite a surprise to both Champ-the-lake monster and several hundred New York residents who had been commuting to jobs in Vermont. Albany’s shutdown recommendation came in October with a supporting “study” in November, demolition in December, and replacement— with a similar two-lane design—and restored vehicle usage promised for the summer of 2011. In the first news reports, bridge deficiency was ascribed to pier deterioration and steelframe superstructure deterioration. Ok, if you look into the consulting engineer ’s reports, you’ll find steel-frame, gusset-plate connectors specifically mentioned. Similarly, you may recall, it was gusset-plate failure which was the primary cause of the Interstate 35 bridge collapse in Wisconsin in 2007. Subsequent news stories mentioned only pier deterioration; in fact, there’s only the briefest mention of gusset plates and no discussion at all of steel frame questions in the NYSDOT report on the Lake Champlain Bridge Project meeting of Nov. 13, 2009, while a full illustrated page is devoted to the flaws in the piers: “Slender, unreinforced”, “no pier armor”, “iron-ore tailings for concrete aggregate” , and original “caisson placement”. The report lays out the “finding” that both pier and superstructure repair and reconstruction options are dismissed and demolition and replacement of both are required. At this point, I was reminded of the Sherlock Holmes quote, “the strange incident of the dog”, in the Arthur Conan Doyle detective mystery “Silver Blaze”— the strange incident being that the dog didn’t bark when it should have. Neither did the NYS-DOT report mention its own prior and successful use of deterioratedconcrete bridge-pier encapsulation technology— some 20 years ago—for repairs on the similar circa-1935 Susquehanna River-Windsor Bridge near Binghamton. It worked! No explanation, in either the engineer ’s summary report or the state report, not even a single use of the word “encapsulation” or why it wouldn’t have worked for the now demolished Lake Champlain Bridge. Pier encapsulation in Broome County, N.Y., was comprised of a 12-inch-thick reinforced concrete surround and cap being poured all around and over the existing questionable piers, to prevent failure from expansion of existing cracks or surface deterioration. There was zero discussion in the LCBP report of the option. If you want one, check out the Internet: “Recon-

struction of Windsor Bridge Piers” posted by the New York Transportation Research Board. It may be that the New York omerta practice regarding encapsulation stems not from engineering but from politics, specifically from the state’s frustration with insufficiently docile residents (who selfishly work outside the state and don’t pay enough income tax inside the state). Albany’s code of silence regarding the use of pier encapsulation, which was dictated to the report-writers, was intended to produce a recommendation that might confine those several hundred New York commuters into finding jobs back where their betters want them—at least for as long as possible (through mid-2011). After that, Albany might like to keep them profitably at home by means of suitably high tolls on an expensive new bridge largely funded by Uncle Sam—that is, you and me. I’ve had my own distasteful experiences with government report purchasers (in one case, Vermont Education Department Commissioner Richard Gibboney, in the 1960s) demanding that a hired study find and recommend what they want it to find and recommend. None of what I have just proposed about the reasons behind the demolition of the Lake Champlain Bridge is provable, so I raise it in print as a thought experiment and not as a documentable or even circumstantial theory. For theoretical substantiation, you might review the tax adventures of New Yorkers who have earned their incomes beyond the state’s boundaries; this may give you a flavor of Albany’s intense interest in taxing those earnings. Similarly, for those who have fled the Empire State, they have discovered that the state’s department of taxes won’t let them leave in fiscal peace. A similar pattern, I am told, prevails for non-residents who commute to jobs in the Empire State and/or the Big Apple—with greedy Albany demanding appropriate (in Albany’s view, of course) percentages of those earnings to balance all the incredibly burdensome costs generated by workers traveling to—ugh!—work. As for the great pier engineering mystery, the consulting and reporting dog that didn’t bark (and the notion of covert-agenda fiscal motivations concealed by Albany’s “omerta” policy), my suspicion is that efforts to research any of these questions would not be graciously welcomed in glasnost-deficient Albany. However, it is—or used to be—a free country. You are welcome to try. Former Vermont architect Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

Hole covered on Fair Haven bridge By Lou Varricchio FAIR HAVEN — The news wasn’t good for regional bridges in 2009. Neglect of the Lake Champlain Bridge, which was demolished late last year, as well as expensive repairs to the heavily traveled, and also neglected, Richmond Bridge in Richmond, Vt., have focused attention on the technical and political reasons why so many bridges are in trouble concurrently in both Vermont and New York. Ok, now add another troubled bridge to the list needing repairs: Fair Haven’s Depot Street Bridge which now has a yawning, two-foot-wide hole through its top deck. While the hole appeared only in the past week, local officials had been aware of the bridge’s deterioration. According to local reports, state officials had appeared oblivious to the problem when asked. Jack Eaton, town public works supervisor, alerted the Fair Haven Selectboard last week about the hole and a temporary “patch”. Eaton said a road crew covered the hole last week with a sturdy metal plate. But the town doesn’t have many options when it comes to permanent repairs to the span. Eaton said Fair Haven Town Manager Serena Williams has already asked the Rutland Regional Planning Commission to seek state funding to repair the bridge.

Hoof clippings transformed into “gemstones” BRANDON — Jeweler Robert Merkert’s Farrier had just finished and the hoof trimmings were on the floor of the stall in Brandon, Vermont. A beam of sunlight illuminated a wet hoof trimming and a hint of the inner beauty was revealed! After months of research, the equinite “gem” was born. The gem colors range from a cream white to a charcoal blackish brown and some are actually reddish. Each one has its own unique character. Some equinite “gems” appear to have the same features that are seen in diamonds. Inclusions and feathers (he calls them horse feathers) are apparent in many of the “gems”.

Merkert has created beautiful rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings in 14k gold and sterling silver with equinite as the focal point. Equinite also makes a keepsake made from your own horses hoof. Merkert will create custom “gems” in a setting of your choice when you send in your own clippings. Keep a part of your special equine companion close—forever. Equinite is sold at Dockside Jewelers, 126 Main St., Whitehall, N.Y., and at Double-M-Western, 678 State Route 67, Ballston Spa, N.Y. For details, see

The Pioneer anamoly


ASA’s atomic-powered robot Pioneer 10 and 11 sister spaceships were the first artificial objects to leave our solar system. Both probes explored the outer solar system after being launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, during the early 1970s. Both interplanetary Pioneer probes have since transitioned to interstellar space objects. And that’s why they are best remembered for the unusual communiques they carry: attached to both spacecraft platforms are etched, metallic plaques with messages of peace from the planet Earth. The illustrated Pioneer mes-

sages, showing the location of our solar system and Earth, as well as the probes mostly hairless bipedal creators, are meant for the eyes of extraterrestrials—that is, those future alien astronauts who might encounter the Pioneers adrift in interstellar space. Similar messages are onboard the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft which have already passed Pioneer 10 and 11 into interstellar space. In 1983, Pioneer 10 was the first terrestrial object to leave the solar system. After three decades of tracking the Pioneers across the outer solar system, mission controllers lost radio contact with Pioneer 11 first. Then, Pioneer 10 fell

silent in 2003. At the time its radio voice faded away, Pioneer 10 was 7.6 billion miles away from Earth. Those of us who remember the exciting Pioneer 10 and 11 flybys of the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn during the 1970s may not be aware that

WEDNESDAY January 20, 2010

Pioneer 10 left the science community with a space mystery to solve—a mystery now known as the Pioneer Anomaly. To understand the complex mathematics behind the Pioneer Anomaly would require a deep study of gravitational and Doppler physics, but the easiest way to explain the Pioneer mystery is to describe it simply this way: When a spacecraft leaves the solar system — in our case, Pioneer 11— it slows down. It’s not supposed to do that according to the way physics is understood today. So, before Pioneer 11 exited our solar system in 1983, physicists and space mission planners had expected just the opposite. Thanks to radio tracking data, received at an Australian tracking station, by the ever receding Pioneer 11, this vexing anomaly has become a fascinating research problem for astrophysicists. Some physicists attribute the Pioneer slowdown to the gravitational effects of the Sun, some to the effects of so-called mirror matter or antimatter, others to spacecraft problems like undetected hydrazine thruster venting that is affecting velocity. While common sense tells us the effects of the Sun’s gravity on a spacecraft leaving our solar system should grow weaker (not stronger), the opposite seems to be the case. As a result of the gravity field change, the Pioneers are not to be found in the spot in deep space they’re supposed to be at—they’re lagging behind. According to NASA-JPL’s John Anderson, who has been studying this anomaly since the 1980s, “Something strange

is happening in the outer reaches of our solar system. The Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft are not where they are supposed to be. These missions, launched in 1972 and 1973, have covered hundreds of millions of kilometers, heading toward the edge of our solar system. But something is holding them back. Each year, they fall behind in their projected travel by about 5,000 kilometers (3,000 miles).” Anderson and his team of researchers haven’t figured it out—yet. “No spacecraft behavior or previously unknown property of the outer solar system can explain the deceleration of the Pioneer spacecraft,” says the Planetary Society’s website about the problem. “Scientists are being forced to consider the unthinkable: something may be wrong with our understanding of the laws of physics. An important line of inquiry will be to study mounds of Doppler (velocity) data and spacecraft status data (like temperatures) that have been unavailable to researchers—but that is about to change.”
